    Well congrats John! Wonder if he will continue to occasionally appear on 1560 as Vandy does 610?

    Looks like Harris's x-teammate from Brown took care of his friend. But I like Harris, I'm glad he got the job, and he knows his football.

    Harris was let go by 1560 at the end of 2013. He's shown up on LZ's show on KBME a few time since then, but I don't know what else he's been up to in the interim.

    He's a good football guy, and I'm glad to see him find what looks like a good gig. Best of luck John.

    Doubt since the Texans radio station is 610. Harris at least has legitimate passion for the sport and works on pure analysis of the sport.

    I've struggled to take the guy seriously since his total, epic meltdown at the Duane Brown pick.

    I respect his insight and knowledge, but I am always hesitant to take anyone who is so emotional, almost capricious, seriously in analysis.

    I think the whole Duane Brown thing is a microcosm of that.

    Congrats to him, nonetheless.

    Did he really? The DB pick was, and still is, one of my favorite picks.

    I don't think a lot of people were happy about that pick. Brown wasn't really in any of the discussions on the board as far as a first round pick. I remember one member who was particularly upset because "we could have had Rashard Mendenhall!!"

    Oh God, I remember that. I was called an idiot because I wanted zero to do with Mendenhall. Actually, I want nothing to do with any RB before round 3. But he had ****ty RB written all over him.

    Very happy for John Harris. Regardless how you feel about his takes and personality, there is no doubt in my mind that he loves football, and really wants to see the Texans succeed as an organization. And I stand behind that. Here's to hoping he continues to speak his mind, right or wrong, and doesn't feel the pressure from the front office to become a John McClain-like talking head for whatever Kool-Aid that they are trying to sell.

    There is no way Harris can be 38. Just sayin...

    Not sure why some of yall seem a bit standoffish about the move. It makes sense to me, John has a history with the coach, the team and the city. He also knows a thing or two about football, and at this point he's no longer a rookie as a member of the media. As far as the DB thing goes, he's admitted over and over he was dead wrong, no one is 100% on their evaluations. If there was such a person, he wouldn't be working in the media. I like it, and look forward to it. :texflag:

    I totally get that and normally don't hold predictions against people--but when your delivery is soooo over-the-top you can't miss by that much.

    Nwachukwu has something all of the Pats offenses have had in the past and the Texans offense currently lacks. Deep speed, he also has good hands and a great vertical. I can see him being used like Brady used Bethel Johnson.

    WR's I see on the roster 80/10/11/Bonner/Nwachukwu and everybody else fighting it out for the WR6 spot if BOB decides to carry 6.
